Will Tenneray and Abe Cross are two famous gunfighters who are getting old and need money. Cross tried his luck at gold prospecting but failed. Tenneray works at the local saloon where he capitalizes on his past fame to "sucker fools into buying drinks". The town expects them to become enemies and kill each other in a gunfight but the two aging gunfighters start liking one another. Desperate for money, Tenneray suggests to Cross to put on a show for the townsfolk and fight in an arena for money. The proceeds from the ticket sales would go to the winner of the gunfight. Both men like the idea of a paid show but hate the possibility of one of them killing the other.Written by

A job? Suckerin' fools to buy drinks? 'Cept I wear my pants on the outside I'm no different from Jenny you laid with last night.
Guess I know what your talkin' about. I worked a job myself before I went out prospectin' this last time.
Trick shootin'. Medicine show. 'Sides me, they had a midget and a tattooed feller.
That says it better.

On this film's second US network airing, ABC-TV cut it to fit into a 90-minutes-with-commercials time slot, excising the sub-plot about the businessman who bet on Tenneray only after Cross had assured him that nothing would happen. See more »
I think I just enjoy this movie because of the actors. The story isn't the best and if you're looking for great art, go elsewhere. But, if you're a fan of Douglas and Cash and would like to see a few other notables on screen, sit back and enjoy the flick with a few beers.
